Sophomore Team Time


INSTRUCTIONAL GOALS:  The second period of every school day is dedicated to a structured, 50 minute class led by faculty and supported by staff members and volunteers. Using a cooperative learning model to promote interdependent learning and build a stronger LCS community, students will gain social skills and develop civic awareness through school wide communication, expectations, and activities. Topics to be covered include effective positive communication, respectfully engaging with the local community, physical and mental health/wellness, bullying, substance use awareness, and social skill-building to create independent, successful young adults that will enter the world upon graduation.


All LCS students are assigned a Team Time teacher who is responsible for guiding them through their academic, transition, and personal goals, along with developing time management and task completion skills. Team Time period will consist of structured activities related to post-graduation opportunities and the development of the Student Transition Portfolio, as well as scheduled meetings between students and their classroom teachers. Students will meet daily with their teams. 


At the end of this course, you will:

  • set short and long term goals based on your values
  • work comfortably with Google Suite tools
  • begin planning your career by finding job options
  • participate in community service activities 
  • advocate appropriately for yourself
  • develop study and test taking skills
  • complete applications, a resume and write cover letters
